Mod Mix Monday 17

A Happy Mix
These colors make me happy.
I use them in my own home all the time.
But that wallpaper mixed with the very serious chairs in circus colors is just too darn pretty.

Yes, it's time for another Mod Mix Monday.

Let's review my favorites from last week...
Gloria at A Little Paint made a bold choice when it came to painting
this vintage table. 
I love the shape of this table and would have bought it myself.
She really made it modern in the way she painted it.
Design Par Deux took a small tired french chair and made
it so pretty and fresh by painting it and adding new upholstery.
Stacy at Conspicuous Style created the look of high dollar drapes
by adding the trim herself.
Chania from Razmataz transformed her kitchen island with old doors, 
barn wood and paint.

Now let's see what you have this week.

I want to see anything new mixed with something old.
Antique and Modern side by side.
Something old made to be new or something new made to look old. 
Vintage and Modern going hand and hand.

Please link to your project post not to your entire blog.

Hi, Nita! So glad I could link up this week. Don't know why I seem to miss this each week. I linked twice (hope that's ok) one that shows old items used in a new way and one with just new.
Had to pin your first pick! LOVE that wallpaper with those chairs. Have a Happy week!

I love the room that you have featured, what a fun place to sit and eat!
I have been gone and too tired to put together a post that would fit here.
Hopefully one week soon I will be able to join again, such a great meme.
Hugs, Cindy
